Four PhD students of the ICT Lab have created a video to explain the basics of channel coding in only five minutes. The concept of channel capacity and how information is transmitted are explained in the story of Alice and Bob, who are participating in a robot competition. Click here for the video.

Mission

We are an academic research group in the Signal Processing Systems Group (Department of Electrical Engineering) at Eindhoven University of Technology in The Netherlands. Our main research interest is in information and communication theory, and its applications. Our mission is to study information processing in a broad sense…

History

In 1972 J.P.M. (Piet) Schalkwijk was appointed as full professor in the field of Information Theory in the Electrical Engineering Department at Eindhoven University of Technology. Together with his staff (Joop de Brouwer, Jan Rooijackers, and Han Vinck) Piet Schalkwijk founded the Informatie en Communicatietheorie Group (EI)…

This project studies the technical feasibility of our previously-introduced hybrid decoding and low-complexity shaping algorithms based on hardware implementations.

In this project the architecture and signal processing of distributed massive MIMO systems is explored. This project is based on the multi-user information theory and the application of coding techniques for reliable transmission.

Read more

The goal of this project is to redefine the way signal shaping techniques have been used so far in linear channels to operate at information rates never achieved before in fibre-optic communications.
